Just Published! Dr Ralph Stanley's Autobiography "Man of Constant Sorrow"
"Dr. Ralph Stanley’s funny, sad, gossipy behind-the-scenes autobiography, 'Man of Constant Sorrow: My Life and Times'. This is not the man of few words you see in concert and at merchandise tables. Here he talks at length about his fatherless childhood, his heroic mother, his brother Carter’s musical brilliance and fatal alcohol addiction. He pays his respects to such legendary Clinch Mountain Boys as George Shuffler, Roy Lee Centers and the effervescent Curly Ray Cline. And Ralph devotes an entire chapter to his friendship with Bill Monroe. Then there are the harrowing and hilarious tales of the road, the accidents and miraculous near misses. It’s a grand and glorious summation of a musical life well lived."
